MediaCityUK II granted planning permission

Sep 2016

We’ve played our part in designing the next phase of MediaCityUK and the aspiration to create a true live/work environment around the UK’s leading creative and digital hub.


Our scheme will deliver 450 apartments in two linear buildings, marking the north-eastern gateway of the development whilst reinforcing connections to the further development to the north at the UTC.


Oriented east-west, the two diverging residential wings are connected by a podium providing retail units to form new streets at ground level as well as a double height entrance and residential lounges and elevated gardens with views over a new market square.


The proposals were developed simultaneously with nine other plots. The individual design teams worked collaboratively to deliver connected and cohesive placemaking.


The ambitious proposals received unanimous approval from Salford City Council.
